In a Perfect World….
I think every Community Center should be equipped with an edible garden and a kitchen to cook the produce in. Kids and adults could learn about many amazing fruits vegetable and how to grow and prepare them.  The garden would subsidize families who can’t afford to buy fresh produce and feed the kids who come in for after school snacks.
Community Centers would also have:
playground with basketball court 
small indoor gym
running/walking track
small pool 
full stocked nurses office with free contraception 
a work shop where people can bring broken household items to be fixed (also serves as training program for kids & adults )
people can also rent out the tools to use on home repair 
fully stocked library for kids and adults with lots of how to books and self help 
Community centers would also be affiliated  with local colleges, and senior and junior students would come help out in their area of study
Teaching students would offering tutoring for kids and adults
Art students would teach art classes
PE students would  teach PE 
Med students would do clinic hours in the nurse office

I wanted to make this chart to clearly outline the pros and cons of the materials we use every day.  Based on EPA’s facts about Styrofoam, Plastic, Glass, and Aluminum (and metals in general) here is a general rule of thumb for what you should use, and how often you should use it.Styrofoam: NEVER use Styrofoam.  It is 0% recyclable and breaks down in the environment into its chemical bases, which is a toxic form of pollution.  Now you can buy bio-degradable packing peanuts made from corn starch that dissolve in liquid, but still keep in mind that you should not use Styrofoam cups or take out boxes.  These are NOT biodegradable and if they are, they are coated in a plastic that will prevent them from breaking down. (because you don’t want your coffee cup melting in your hand)
Plastic: Plastic is a really incredible material, it’s light weight and “cheap.”  But plastic is made from the same stuff we put in our cars: Petroleum! If we want to conserve what’s left of our petroleum reserves we need to really cut back on our plastic use, especially the “one use plastics” like bags, utensils and cups.  A German scientist has invented a kind of plastic that is 100% recyclable.  “Cradle to Cradle” plastic.  Glass Glass is 100% recyclable, and it comes from a completely sustainable source: Sand! However, it IS heavy, and it IS breakable, but with the power of science many companies are providing lighter, break resistant glass.  Think about it, those starbucks frappuccino drinks come in glass bottles, so does old school coke.  Use glass when you can, and make sure to save it all for a Monthly or Bi-Monthly trip to a recycling drop off center, since most Curb Side services will not pick up glass recycling.
Aluminum, Tin, & Steel These metals are incredible, like plastic they are light weight and durable, but they are 100% recyclable as long as they aren’t coated in plastic or wax. They are all 100% recyclable because they are a metal and easily melt down and can be reformed. The only down-side is that we get the raw material from mining, which can have a negative effect on the environment. Especially mountain top removal mining, which is the new “most efficient” method, but almost the most detrimental.  You’ll be surprised how many of the items you use every day are Aluminum, Tin, and Steel.  Just check the bottom and chuck it in the recycling bin.

Easy Plastics to Avoid: Plastic Utensils - Wash and Reuse a few, or use cheap metal camping utensils
Bottles: Especially water bottles, bring your own reusable bottles from home. They make really nice metal ones now, but if you do buy plastic make sure it’s BPA free.Coffee Cups - The paper cup can’t be recycled and neither can the plastic.  It’s SO easy to keep the  Starbucks ceramic and plastic re-fillable cups in your car and use them.  Every coffee house is more than willing to use your cup.  (but not fast food joints) Plastic Bags - These are the bane of the environment’s health. animals eat them, they can ruin a nice looking landscape, they clog sewer drains and cause flooding.  Buy a pretty cloth or plastic bag and keep them in your car.  Good luck everyone! I promise that once you switch to these options you will not regret it.  It feels so good and it’s 100% easy and do-able even for the busiest person.
